Science Advances Use of Therapeutic Gold, Silver Nanoparticles

from Wealth Cycles:

Gold and silver have long been valued as monetary metals, substances of beauty and ornamentation; secure stores of wealth and even as industrial components. Within the last decade, gold has been increasingly used as a nano-pharmaceutical, capable of penetrating cell walls in order to precisely target delivery of medicines, heat from x-rays used to destroy cancer cells and for cellular imaging. Silver was deemed too unstable for such uses.

But in fall 2013, scientists stumbled upon a silver nanoparticle that promises to be even more stable and easy to use than gold.

Since 2008, gold nanoparticles, sub-microscopic, sphere-shaped particles about one-10,000th the diameter of a single strand of human hair, have been used in medical treatments, unique in their ability penetrate human cell walls without destroying the cells. For a long time, even as they devised new and more sophisticated ways of using gold nanoparticles to target particular types of cells, scientists didn’t really know how or why it worked.

    Nano-tech is absolutely the most amazing area of science to come along, ever. It will literally remake our world as well as ourselves. The applications for it are literally bounded only by the limits of our imaginations.

    We know that silver is one of the most potent anti-bacterial substances known to man and that it has incredibly low toxicity in mammals. It has been used to preserve food and water and to treat injuries for centuries. But now, the ability to deliver micro amounts of it directly to particular cells or body parts means that it can be successfully directed to wherever the problem is in our bodies. This is why chemotherapy is so dangerous… it is not easily directed at only the cancerous cells in the body and also kill many healthy cells in the area. Once we can so direct silver and perhaps gold nano-particles, it could very well become possible to develop a cure for cancer that only kills the cancerous cells. That would be absolutely amazing and would virtually eliminate the suffering and expense of this dreaded disease.
